A Note from Cancer Care Counselling
Archives for January 2021 « Recent Articles
As we approach Valentine’s, known as the holiday of Love, it is a time to reflect on our hearts, how we give and receive Love. Love comes in so many forms and often it is Self Love which receives the least amount of our attention. In essence Self Love is the most important journey we will take; the journey of loving ourselves We focus so much time and attention on caring for our parents, children, spouses, friends, partners, and colleagues that often our own needs are left out. Without…
Finding Motivation on your Cancer Journey
What is your motivation? It can be a difficult question to answer when faced with a cancer diagnosis.
After all, motivation – being motivated – sparks a sense of inspiration and action. What spurs you on to tackle the challenges you face? In this sense, finding motivation during a cancer diagnosis is especially important for many patients.
Finding a sense of motivation and hope can help you face what is perhaps one of the hardest challenges you’ll ever…
Largely, we were happy to wish 2020 goodbye, a year that brought us unprecedented change and disruption! But, what if 2020 DID bring us gifts and silver-linings? What if this was a year of unprecedented change that turned out to be a positive turning point for society and for us personally?

For the caregiver, this time of year adds additional stresses that other’s might not encounter; such as the constant need to physically distance. Then add in seasonal tasks like shopping for holiday gifts, wrapping presents, decorating the house and hosting our bubble get-togethers; the pressures of the season can soon take its toll and become downright exhausting. The result is often be a case of caregiver burnout.
Preventing Holiday-Related Caregiver Burnout
As we head into this holiday season, it is important for caregivers to ask for and accept help. Not asking for help can cause caregivers to withdraw and avoid celebrating the holidays altogether. In fact, studies have shown that four in ten caregivers say they can’t manage it all during the holidays. However, caregivers deserve to celebrate the holidays, too, time to relax, and time to enjoy family and friends.
